Monday, March 28, 1977--Los Angeles
...At 4:00 I went to Fred's room to photograph Willie Shoemaker the jockey. Richard Weisman commissioned me to do a series of athletes' portraits. Richard will keep some of the portraits and some will be for sale and the athletes will get to keep some. So Willie was the first athlete. Had to get some film (cab to Schwab's $3, film $15.30--lost slip). Willie's wife called from the lobby and she came up with a girlfriend--but without Willie. He didn't show up till ten after 5:00 and when he saw her, he couldn't believe she was there. He'd been in court getting a divorce from her, that's why he was late.
